Now, my grandfather, was actually a large coin collector. I remember receiving a silver Ike bicentennial from him a few years ago, and have kept it ever since.

I'm a little late saying something about this, but I am here, at my grandpa's old home, and it feels empty without him. And since he was such a big coin collector, I thought I would pay some more respects for him on this site, if he knew about this place, I'm sure he would be a great member on Coin Community.

Here is a little about him:

. Legacy involves the passing from one generation to the next. I'm sure he would be proud that the Ike has meaning to you.
